The LoveQuilt Connection is an event taken to National Quilt and Sewing events to promote community charity work through quilting. At the event, a coordinator works with volunteers to make the 6 Hour Quilt by Kaye Wood. At the end of the event a charity which has been chosen in advance sends a representative to receive the quilts. The organization then promises to give these quilts to individuals in need.
The LQC mission is to encourage people to make 6 Hour Quilts and ultimately to have as many people as possible learn the technique, so they in turn can, "pay it forward", by teaching it to others. Over 2500 quilts have been made since Love Quilt Connection first introduced this program in 1993. Many quilters have introduced the 6 Hour Quilt to their own communities.
Fabrics donated by Paul and Mary Kaeser for 2010-2014 Events
